From August 22 to 27, 2009, the 28th International Horticultural Congress will take pace in Lisbom, Portugal, under the patronage of the International Horticultural Society ISHS.  A symposium on organic horticulture will be held.

The objective of the Symposium is to provide a forum among researchers, extension workers and horticulturists, to discuss worldwide innovations in the fields of science and technology, market trends and policies. It will be a great opportunity to exchange experiences and research related to best practices leading to higher efficiency and sustainability of horticultural production under organic management. In addition, it is a chance to deal with major contemporary issues such as climate change, food safety and conservation of natural resources (soil, air, water and biodiversity) throughout different agro-ecological areas of the world.

The symposium will consist of invited papers, oral presentations and poster presentations.

Abstracts can be submitted until December 31, 2009.
